Delicious!

So, I'm not really the target audience for Plum Bistro. I eat meat, and what's worse I have Celiac disease, which makes a lot of go-to vegan / vegetarian foods no good for me. My wife and her sister are vegetarians though, and I had dinner at Plum with them. The menu is fairly simple, and bistro... read more

My son and I stayed in the Capital Hill area and were able to walk to Plum Vegan Bistro. By chance, we hit happy hour which was perfect. We each ordered 3 mini burgers or sliders each. I ordered the buffalo seitan, smoked tofu, and quinoa and millet (in order from awesome, to slightly less awesome). If I were to... More

This is the best vegetarian restaurant I've ever been to. It is a bit pricey, but well worth the cost if you are vegetarian (or like vegetarian) and want a nice and good meal. HIGHLY recommended! I had a seitan steak with mushroom gravy, rosemary mashed potatoes, and Brussels sprouts.

I liked this place so much on my trip back in August 2014 that I went back on my recent trip for brunch. Being a vegan, it's great to have a real choice, even if it means struggling to decide which dish to pick. The brunch menu had some truly great dishes. In the end I opted for the Southern... More

Being vegetarian, I’m always looking for a great restaurant when I travel. After getting rave reviews from locals (veg and non-veg alike), I decided to make the hike to the Capitol Hill area. The restaurant has a cozy/rustic atmosphere with dim lighting and small tables. However, there was one booth and it appears they can cater to larger groups because... More

We found this place because we discovered a book with recipes bases on this cafe, so we thought (rightfully as it turned out) that there must be something to it. Located within in a loft building in the heart of Seattle, the Plum offers lovely meals for reasonable prices and an interesting assortment of Vegan beer on top. The service... More

We stopped at Plum Cafe in Capitol Hill for a late lunch before heading back to Portland from Victoria over Canada Day weekend. My daughter, who is vegan, picked out Plum. My wife and I had shared some chowder earlier at Pike Place Chowder, so we split an order of rosemary fries and a salad. The rosemary fries were very... More

Stopped in spontaneously last Saturday around 6pm, looked very inviting , all tables were full we opted to sit near the bar on a couple of stools. Our server was also the bartender who greeter us promptly and was super friendly. After that it was very hard to get her attention as she was busy at the bar and the... More
